“Ms. Aiko ba’t ka nagpopost ng ratings ng Primadonnas na mas mataas kayo sa kabila tas you are supporting ABS,” the actress quoted a comment in her post.

Melendez asked netizens why are they pleased to hear about ABS-CBN’s shutdown.

“Why are we pleased with others’ misfortunes? The emotion of pleasure in one’s misfortunes is an evil act. It is considered to be less acceptable than envy. Which is regarded as a deadly sin,” she wrote.

The veteran actress explained that she has humanitarian reason why she backed her former network’s franchise renewal.

She added that her heart bleeds for thousands of people who will lose their jobs should ABS-CBN will be forced to close shop by the end of March 2020.

“Wag tayong maging mababaw sa oras na ganito. I will never rejoice on the thought that while my position is secured with GMA still madami ang mawawalan. Sana malinaw tayo sa ganyan,” Melendez pointed out.

“Iisang industry kami natural lang we got each other’s backs.”
